Hi there, haven’t listened yet but plan to… we spoke impromptu in the sauna at the local swim club. My name is Devin Triantos and you can find me on YouTube speaking about mental health as well. Would love to connect for a conversation! Thanks for reading!
Love these conversations!
I’m just now finding this podcast and LOVE IT!! Their voices, (literally and metaphorically) are just what I needed, I feel a little less not ok in just one episode, will be going through the archives!
Profound AND Laugh Out Loud Funny!
Huge gratitude to Karen and Katie for this hilarious and genuine gift of a podcast. We are all struggling and trying to make sense of this preposterous world- great to have you two validating and helping us along!
